Armstrong Ceilings canopies have been specified for new common areas in a Royal Masonic Benevolent Care home.
The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institution Care Company required the quality of the ceiling finish to be raised without losing access to the existing installations that were surface mounted whilst being cost-effective.
The 40mm-thick Armstrong Optima L 1200mmx1200mm canopies were specified due to excellent sound absorption, light reflectance of 87% and fire reaction performance to Euroclass B-s1, d0, as well as being fully recyclable.
The Fagerhult Discovery EVO light fittings feature integral wireless E-Sense Move, allowing Mitie engineers to install and commission the fittings easily. E-Sense Move is a duplex system which means all luminaires are combined “master” and “slave”. When presence is detected, information is sent on to one or more luminaires, which turn on. Each sensor can actively “listen” to 15 other sensors.
Adam Mansell, specification manager, said: “The hall’s circulation areas were rather tired and in need of an update and I was called in to see what we could do.
“The ceilings were quite low and cables and services were potential problems also. I came up with the idea of fitting Optima canopies down the corridors so as not to disrupt services and the residents too much. The client and the FM manager are really pleased with the result, commenting on how good they look and how quiet the corridors are now.”
